talon Posted January 19, 2008 Report Share Posted January 19, 2008 So I went to meet up with the local Ferrari and British car clubs, only to find that it had been postponed a week due to inclement weather. We ran into a lovely couple that had not gotten the notice either and had lunch with them. Afterwards we were invited back to his shop to take a tour. I managed to snap a couple pics. These were taken at his friends shop next door.
